Fund objective
The aim of the Fund is to grow the amount you invested. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in shares of smaller companies in Continental Europe or companies that have significant operations there. As it invests in smaller companies, the Fund will mainly choose shares from companies that are smaller in size than the top 225 companies in the FTSE World Europe (ex UK) Index. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above. The Fund permanently invests a minimum of 75% of its assets in European Economic Area equities, and is therefore PEA (Plan d’Epargne en Actions) eligible in France.
